I wasn't taking your post as offensive...I just fell in love with the sound of a transmission line and want to improve the sound.
I'll try to design a tapered line and post it up to see if it is correct.

Cool... Like I said, wasn't trying to tear anything apart. Transmission Line Enclosure - Page 2 -- posted image. But it's pretty easy to do, huh? I've been in love with TL's since the first time I ever heard one! Then I built one! WOW!! Fun to play with and tweak, too!

Happy to do what I can to help!
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

If my trunk wasn't so tiny I'd try one. That thing is really cool.

Hell, man! I did it in MY trunk - a two door Civic!! ANYBODY can do it!

Allright heamph, I'll bite.  aznboi's got me dyin to try one - and my stereo is about to come out to make room for a case of Dynamat anyway.  I never could find woofers to replace those CDT's I've been complaining about anyway - I haven't liked a woofer I've purchased since my Kappa Perfects got stolen a few years ago.  I might as well try a whole new deal eh....

Any links you could recommend to start researching the build?  Googling seems to turn up alot of stuff about electrical cables - and the topic doesn't seem to get much coverage here on the12volt.  Does WinISD Alpha do transmission lines?  How does this alignment influence total power handling?

Copies of the how-to files are HERE.  Have fun.  (BTW I've built systems using the hybrid TL theory described in these docs and they sound fantastic.  Extension to 28Hz with a 7" woofer, for example.)
